From Queen to Beethoven, the award-winning children's author discusses her castaway choices. With Sue Lawley. From October 2005.

She's won just about every award going for children's fiction and, in a career spanning more than 30 years, has written more than 80 books. Even as a child she knew she wanted to write but, after an inauspicious time at school, she reluctantly trained to be a secretary instead. Then she began to pitch ideas for a new teen magazine, Jackie, her stories were bought and she quickly became a staff writer.

But she was 50 before she devised her most famous creation, Tracy Beaker. Tracy is a streetwise, feisty girl growing up in the competitive world of a children's home, who never loses the hope that one day her mum will come back for her. The book was a breakthrough for Jacqueline and its subsequent television adaptation introduced her to a mass audience. In 2002 she was awarded an OBE for services to literacy.

Following the death of their parents, twins Jules and Harry were brought up by their grandmother Rose. Remote and eccentric, it is not until after Rose's death that Jules and Harry begin to discover who she really was and what she did in the war.

After finding clues to the whereabouts of the legacy in Rose's attic, Harry sets off for the City of London. Harry thinks he's heading for a security vault but finds himself trapped in an underground complex of bunkers. Rose it emerges worked for the secret services during the war and helped to develop The Legacy Project - a secret weapon built to disrupt and defeat the Nazis in the event of them being able to occupy London. The weapon, hidden underground, was designed to destroy the centre of London with other weapons being replicated in major cities throughout Britain. It should have been deactivated after the war but was kept secretly in commission for use during the Cold War.

Rose believed it should have been destroyed and had a life-long goal to de-activate it. But she ran out of time. Now Harry and Jules have been left the challenge but they are not the only people trying to find the Legacy Project, and not everyone has peaceful intentions.
